So, I saw this article this morning on WikiHow, that tells you how to visit a brewery. Now, maybe I'm just old hat at this, but I would have thought this was a pretty basic thing that you didn't need to be told how to do. You know, kind of like, "How to go grocery shopping". But maybe I'm off base here.
In any case, I think it is good to give non-beer-geeks the idea to visit breweries. I imagine some people would never have thought of it. I really don't mean to sound as sarcastic as I probably do in that last paragraph; it just struck me as funny. Also, this article does a good job of showing how to visit a brewery that doesn't really do tours or visitors. These small breweries are the most interesting, at least in my opinion. They seem to be the closest to homebrewing, and I would love to someday be able to sell my own beer. I would be sure to advertise tours, though.... I think tours are a great way to build a loyal base of fans. And they are so much fun!
